Is the HBO Documentary Series THE JINX 2 possible?

Is the HBO Documentary Series THE JINX 2 possible?

You were among those glued to HBO’s airing of the documentary series THE JINX: THE LIFE AND DEATHS OF ROBERT DURST earlier this year, right? The six episode limited series, or miniseries or whatever it is classified, held audience’s attention as murder suspect Robert Durst allowed cameras to be turned on him. The crimes, as best they could be pieced together, were reenacted and Durst was interviewed. What was revealed was creepy, odd and disturbing the whole way up to its final moments. Since then, THE JINX (by Andrew Jarecki, pictured) was entangled in a bit of controversy as to how it how/when it was shot. The bigger news was that...

Movie Review: The Book of Life

If you like animated movies that convey a moral message, combined with a lot of pop culture references and current musical numbers, then this is the movie for you. Whimsical and funny animated characters take you back to a magical time of wonder, remembrance and of course, the traditional battle of good versus evil. The characters are voiced by an ensemble cast – Ron Perlman, Channing Tatum, Danny Trejo, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Christina Applegate and Ice Cube. It all begins with a school trip to the museum – a bunch of “detention” students are dropped off and the doorman looks a little anxious. Not to worry, a new museum tour...

True Detective: “Night Finds Us”

True Detective: “Night Finds Us”

Holy shit. Last night’s True Detective was a shocker right?! Who saw that one coming? It’s gone all Game of Thrones on us and potentially killed off one of the main characters in episode two, which serves as a not-so-friendly reminder that this show can get incredibly dark and twisted at the flip of a switch. No one is safe, everyone has a secret and the city is an unforgiving pit of despair. The majority of the episode played out like any other, building character stories, opening doors, asking questions and widening the vice. The three detectives come together to hear the autopsy report for Ben Caspere, the man found dead at the end...

VICE Season 3 Finale: “Cold War 2.0″

  Overview: For 45 years, America was locked in the Cold War with the Soviet Union, and fear of global nuclear annihilation was constant. The end of the Cold War in 1991 was supposed to usher in a new era of peace and cooperation, but it didn’t last. Tensions between the U.S. and Russia have been simmering for years. And now, the conflict in Ukraine has pushed the relationship to the brink of full-blown crisis. VICE Founder Shane Smith met Kremlin officials and American leaders to figure out what’s really driving the new standoff between the powers, while correspondent Simon Ostrovsky reported from the front lines of the...

My Experience at the New York City HBO Store

My Experience at the New York City HBO Store

If you’re a fan of HBO, and it’s variety of high-quality shows, there’s probably been a moment when you’ve been tempted to buy a piece of merchandise, whether that be a t-shirt, a key-chain, an exact replica of a sword, or if you’re really a die hard fan who just inherited a great deal of wealth, perhaps a life-sized Iron Throne(as offered on the official HBO Store website for the tidy sum of $30,000). At this point, if you’ve ever browsed the extensive online HBO store, you will know HBO has realized that people are ready to spend their money on everything from collectible action figures and...

Movie Review: John Wick

Movie Review: John Wick

     Movies about a hard-edged hitman who just want to leave their lives behind are a dime a dozen. They’re easy to write, with the action built into the premise. They’re easy to produce, with action that promises an audience to see it. They’re easy to make, but they aren’t easy to make well. The usual excuse is that for dumb action flicks, you shouldn’t have to think because that gets in the way. Sometimes the action can make up for a dumb story, but more often than not a dumb story is only going to amplify the stupidity of the action. Or worse, leave an audience apathetic to its outcome. John Wick does...

The Knick Season 2 Premieres in October

The Knick Season 2 Premieres in October

Do you lay awake at night while your thoughts drift to some of the disturbing scenes in The Knick? Oh, that’s just me? Well if you’re a fan of Clive Owen you’ll be happy to know that we finally have a narrowed premiere window for The Knick season 2. Cinemax has been releasing several teaser videos for the new season. And by teaser we certainly mean TEASER because these are nothing more than some sound effects and a scene that may or may not be from season 1 of The Knick.  Here’s an example: Well, it does give you the same atmosphere you’ve come to expect from The Knick. Now, these trailers only say “This...

The Brink: First Impression

The Brink: First Impression

HBO has long been a leader, a trend setter if you will, when it comes to amazing television and they have rarely cared all that much about ratings, so long as people were talking. In the last decade we have seen HBO utterly dominate this new “Golden Age” of television, winning enough awards to pave Richard Plepler’s (HBO CEO), very long driveway with Emmys! HBO has such a sterling reputation for quality and excellence that it’s sometimes hard to notice when they miss. So powerful is the HBO Brand, that even Sunday nights lack luster debut of “The Brink” barley registered. It’s a proven fact that networks can throw money and...
